    Marvel Unlimited Is A Severely Limited Subscription Comics Service For iOS

    The only thing I want in this world is an all-you-can-read monthly comic subscription service, which I can use on the iPad. Which is why Marvel launching Marvel Unlimited on iOS seemed like a dream come true. But in actual fact, it’s like promising a feast and delivering a few mouldy Saltines.

  • Boing Boing shows off the Marvel Comics iPad app

    The Marvel Comics app one of the three iPad apps that actually make me want to drink the Apple kool-aid and go lay down alongside the Apple faithful to slowly drift towards a land of simple, non-multitasking computing. So far we’ve only seen screenshots and a press release for the app, but Xeni over at Boing Boing posted a quick hands-on video that sealed my fate. I think I’m going… Read More

  • Marvel announces plan to create iTunes content

    Marvel announced last week at ComicCon that they are going to be creating “In-Motion” comics for the iTunes store.

Didn’t they attempt some sort of desktop solution for this? Read More

  • Marvel execs: Comics coming to our cellphones?

    When you think about it, the idea of comic books on cellphone screens is something of a no-brainer. The individual panels of a comic are just the right size for a mobile’s small screen.

  • THQ and Marvel embrace tenderly over game deal


    THQ is clearly pumped about this. The uber-developer and publisher, which works with such industry leaders as Gas Powered Games and Relic, calls Marvel “one of the true crown jewels in the entertainment industry.” How flattering!

  • Marvel rolling in cash, many more movies to come

    Despite Marvel’s attempt to shut down our Iron Man screening in SF last week, I have nothing but good things to say about them. Well, Marvel Studios to be exact.

Batman Begins was… Read More
